Monday Morning Makeover


We, meaning My Love, is still working on finishing up Buttercup’s Room.  There is still a bit of moulding and painting that needs to be done but in the meantime I thought I would spruce some things up a bit.


I tend to “collect” things with the intention of fixing them up for my kids’s rooms.  I started out with this little kitchen set that I found awhile ago for $10 at a resale shop:
and this blue patio table and kid chairs from Goodwill for rediculously low prices:
Did a little bit of prep work:
And used my new favorite spray paint color:
(I primed it first with a bright red primer for plastic!)
Although Buttercup has played with these kitchen items forever, it has driven me crazy with all of the mis-matched stuff.  Now I finally have a big smile on my face to see it look like this:
And this is the other side of the room, remember it’s still a work in progress trying to cram all of her neverending kid junk beautiful toddler toys into a small space.   But I wanted to show you that I painted the daybed with Rustoleum Heirloom white and love the way it turned out!  Remember I found it for $10 during my Garage Sale Weekend trip? (and the large frame?)
And here she is now, crashed on the couch, I left her there so I could work on her room while she was sleeping:
I cannot wait to wake her and show her what I have done to the kitchen set, I hope it puts a big smile on her face! My Love will smile that I paid a whopping $0 today on this project.
P.S.  Yesterday at Walmart she was BEGGING me for a Dora play kitchen that was the same color – ahem! $99!  Maybe I should put a few Dora stickers on the sides of it so she will like it more!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed ButterCup’s kitchen remodel!

    It looks great! I have a ton of these plastic play things that I have been terrified to spray paint. I keep saying I'm going to whenever I get around to "decorating" (aka controlling the chaos of) the playroom. I'll have to come back to this to remind myself that it's worth it!! And I'm all for a few Dora stickers :o)

    Check back with me in a few months and I'll let you know if it survived the "3 year old toddler test!" I probably should have used the Krylon for Plastic but I used what I had on hand – we'll see!

    Tami, it turned out great! I love when everything matches too! 🙂 Girl I have toys coming out my ears! He has a million downstairs and a room upstairs that just houses all of his older toys! I just dont want to get rid of them until I know I am done having kids…

    Thanks Allyson. I am a little too neurotic with matchy-matchy but it makes me happy. Fourth and last kiddo here, but I know what you mean about having a hard time getting rid of toys.
    Maria, thanks for always being so encouraging 🙂
